Exhibition round-up & a New Painting

Standard

Well, I’m back from the seaside!  The exhibition, The Enchanted Earth, finished last week at the Aldeburgh Gallery.

I had some painting sales and sold lots of cards.  I spent the Bank Holiday weekend sitting in the window working on a new painting and talking to people who came in, which was nice.

Here are a few photos I took during the week:

The painting I was working on is now complete:

I’m now taking a well earned rest this week, and then I’ll be back in the studio with some fresh ideas for some new paintings.

Back soon with something to show you 🙂

 

 

Fancy a trip to the seaside?

Standard

For one week only, The Aldeburgh Gallery, on the Suffolk Coast,  is proud and excited to display a selection of artworks by Deborah Eileen Burrow themed, “The Enchanted Earth”.  There will be brand new artworks, alongside some favourites,  featuring her autumnal trees and white birches.

How exciting!

The exhibition name, Enchanted Earth, has come from a solo show I did back in 2009 in the depths of winter.  That show was poorly attended due to excessive amounts of snow.  So we’ve decided to use the name again.

I’ve been busy this week finishing some brand new paintings for this solo show.  Here is one of them:

I’m really pleased with how this painting turned out.  It is based upon a large painting I did in 2010.  I was going to put a stag in that painting, but decided against it.  This time I thought I’d put a pair of deer in, and it has worked really well.

You can keep up with the other new paintings here

Here is the flyer with all the details you need to get to the Enchanted Earth exhibition:

PS Also had a fab day on Wednesday meeting up for a cuppa with fellow artists Megan Chapman & Stuart Bremner in London.  Megan lives in Arkansas, and Stuart lives in Edinburgh, so it was a rare treat to meet up.  Wonderful it was too – really nice people.

A Walk Around the Exhibition

Standard

This Easter weekend I am taking a much needed breather after last week’s exhibition, “Dad & Daughter”.

I am happy to report I sold 2 paintings, and so did Dad.  We also sold lots of cards and postcards featuring our artworks too.  The guestbook has some lovely comments in as well ☺

Here are a few snapshots of the exhibition:


Here is a walk round video taken on the 2nd day. Enjoy!

Busy in the studio – and I love it!

Standard

Well, life has been very busy this last few weeks.  With many projects on the go, my work has been cut out!  I am still networking a lot and finding this a very positive way of promoting myself, as people get to meet me in person as an artist.

I have also been preparing for the exhibition with my dad too – the flyers arrived today, and I’m working through all the artworks I want to be ready by then.  Here are a couple of new ones to show you:

These will both be on show at the following upcoming exhibition:

I have also booked another exhibition for the autumn in Bury St Edmunds at the Lounge Cafe for 6weeks starting 8th September.  This will be a joint show with Susan Miller.

I’ve also been approached by The Aldeburgh Gallery, on the beautiful Suffolk Coast,  to do a solo show in Spring 2013 which is very exciting.  Always nice to have a show in the diary for next year!

I’ve also been chatting with my mentor, Katie Millard, about doing an exhibition together.  Our theme will be birds, so I have been experimenting with a loose watercolour style.  Katie will concentrate on coastal birds whilst I will coax out some paintings of inland birds.

So, lots going on!

More news soon 🙂

Happy January 2012

Standard

Hello!

I trust you all had a good Christmas and are getting settled into the new year of 2012!

I’m happy to tell you that I feel invigorated after my 2 weeks off over the holidays.  I’ve not taken 2 weeks off together for a few years, and despite having a really horrible virus over new year and the first week of January, it was really worth it.

Over the last week I have been working with my Dad, Henry W Vincent in organising our first exhibition together.  I’m so proud to tell you that Dad and I will be putting on a show in Bury St Edmunds, Suffolk starting 31st March.  Its very exciting as he hasn’t ever had an exhibition despite being a good artist.  He’s now 68 and is really happy to finally be doing a show!  We are both landscape artists, in acrylics and watercolours.  We differ in our styles though – Dad is a realist painter and I am a contemporary painter.   We are both influenced by landscapes that we encountered as young people – for Dad it is the Mourne Mountains in Northern Ireland and for me it is fields and trees of Suffolk/Norfolk.  I’m really looking forward to this exhibition and I will share more with you as time progresses over the next 10 weeks and through the launch event on 31st March.

Here is an example of Dad’s work:

In other news, I have finally moved my studio.  I have a whole room now, with 3 easels and a table to work on!  Such bliss!!   I moved over last Friday, Saturday and Sunday and started work in there today! Its such a nice room.  It faces North too which is great as there’s no glaring sunshine, just diffuse light.

Here are some photos:

        

I’ll be spending many hours in here – it feels just right already 🙂

That’s all for now, see you next time with some photos of happy customers and their paintings hopefully ☺

Something New for the Fox Inn

Standard

This week I am still busy with the large commission I’m working on – a diptych … here’s a sneak preview…

I’m a bit further on with it now, but still a lot to do.  I’m really enjoying working on large canvas again.

Tomorrow I’m delivering a new batch of work to the Fox Inn in Bury St Edmunds.  I’ve had some autumnal work in there for the last few months, and they have requested something a bit lighter in mood, and some hares.   So here’s what I’m taking:

All of these are framed up and ready to hang.  Even though the last one is snowy, the overall look when it’s framed is just nice colouring and eye catching.   Funny thing is that I sell more snow paintings in the summer!  Maybe its to make one feel cooler on hot days!!

In other news:  I am just finishing the first chapter draft for the publishers of my new book.  Working title “10 steps to keeping creative”.  They’re happy with the rest of the proposal and want me to write it…happy days!

The exhibition Upstairs @ The Brewery Tap in Ipswich is still on til the last day of July.  So if you’re in the area I recommend you have a meal there – its really good, and then pop upstairs for a browse of my works.

I’ve also started 2 new acrylics on canvas – one large and one medium, in preparation for the Toot Arts exhibition in October where Susan and I are going to have a 12 artist show back in the Edmund Gallery in Bury St Edmunds.  More about that at a later date.

Thats all for now, back soon

What a great afternoon!

Standard

The launch event for my solo exhibition was on Saturday 2nd July Upstairs at the Brewery Tap in Ipswich, Suffolk.  It was really special as I had a local singer songwriter perform acoustically for half hour during the afternoon.  When Rhiannon started singing the whole room went quiet and she held them spellbound for her entire performance.  Wow!

Here are some photos of her performance being accompanied by Harry:

Rhiannon is only 16 and one of my vocal students which made this event even more special for me.  I was very proud of her 🙂

I had lots of interest in my work too with some really lovely feedback – the show is on til 31st July, so if you’re in the area, pop in and see it.  The Brewery Tap do wonderful food and it has a super atmosphere, so why not do both!

I’ll pop back in this week and take some more photos of the room as its an amazing area with original wooden crates and brewery equipment dials….attractive bits of history 🙂

On a different note, I am in the process of restocking my online shop with cards, prints and more.  You can find it here.  The prints sold out over the weekend, but I’ll be getting more.  If you see anything in my gallery that you’d like a print of, please let me know by email.

Thanks for stopping by – keep smiling – the sun is shining! ☼
